Eggnog seems to be one of those beverages that people either love or hate. There are so many variations in recipes that some are treasured and others are shunned. Some recipes utilize uncooked eggs and some require the eggs to be cooked, while others don’t call for any eggs at all.

There are eggnogs with alcoholic beverages added, such as rum and others that use flavorings and extracts. Some eggnogs are whipped and foamy and others are thick and rich. So, unless you are 100 percent certain that you hate all forms of eggnog, perhaps you might find a recipe here that is more to your liking.

If you like the flavor but don’t like to drink eggnog, then consider using it as an ingredient in your holiday baking, such as in breads, cakes or cookies. And if you are a loyal eggnog fan, may you hopefully find a favorite or two to add to your collection.
